A few flies for the trip

I've been at the vise over the last week filling up the boxes with steelhead flies.  I've got a few big flashy flies I've had luck with in the past like Feenstra's Halloween leeches and Aquatic Nuisances.  There are a few new flies I want to try out I found on Jeff Hubbard's site Outfitter's North like the luscious leech and trespasser.  I have confidence all this stuff will work well with higher water but if it ends up being low and clear which looks like the case this year I'll probably have to go to some smaller, less flashy stuff.  Normally my go to flies are woolly buggers in these conditions
